Subject: Look How Many Pages!
Shows the furniture available, mostly imitation styles, like the Very Late Chippendale Suite with which it opens, though most seating is overstuffed. Italian Renaissance Davenport Tables (sofa tables) show what was in vogue in revivals, and there is very much less Mission than one would expect. This is mostly in "masculine room" pieces: library tables, desks, bookcases, smoking cabinets. The "Modest Suite in Tudor Period Style" is no such thing, being decidedly ditsy 1700s with a tiny draped swag, one per piece.

The rattan seems far more of its time, though of course designed for the summer. "Fibre Home Necessities" include ferneries (plant stands) with built-in birdcages. The "Pullman bed-davenport" is what we would call a sleeper-sofa. Alas, the rugs and linoleum are in B&W. This shows that the "telephone stand" for sitting and yakking has been popularised. The music roll cabinet is so of its time, when player pianos were still popular.
